TRUCK DRIVERS’ WELFARE PROJECT  (2017)

Safer Roads and Satisfied Transports !!!

 

Hyundai Glovis has forever emphasized road safety for all. Being a logistic company, it consistently works with various communities to ensure ‘safe roads and satisfied transports’. One of them being Truck-drivers: Truck Drivers who are the unsung heroes of highway traffic don’t usually receive the necessary attention and support for the effort and hard-work they put-in.

 

 

        Eye Camp for Truck Drivers – August 2017

 

Every year Glovis India conducts many free Eye-camps exclusively for truck-drivers. Glovis India planned for a massive Eye-camp for the benefit of the Truck-drivers Community on 31st August 2017 at Hyundai Glovis. More than 500 truck drivers participated in the event. They received free eye-screening, diagnosis and spectacles. Each participant also received a woolen blanket, a reflector cap and a LED torch. Various road-safety videos were played at the gathering to educate in prevention of road accidents.

 

‘Une touche verdre’- ORGANIC KITCHEN GARDEN IN SCHOOLS

Glovis India has designed and implemented a self-sufficient organic kitchen garden that produces enough vegetables for the consumption of the children studying in PUPS School - Gandhigramam. The setting-up of the vegetable garden was completed on 12th October 2017 and is expecting start yielding by the end of December 2017. Every day yield is to be harvested and incorporated in the mid-day meals of the children themselves. This way the children will get to eat a wide range of greens, vegetables, herbs and fruits and meet their dietary requirements.

CHEER (NGO) with their expertise in the field has set up the garden elegantly.

Adding to this the school has been beautified with various cartoon art as wall-paintings and a small pond garden is set up for the children to learn in nature-friendly atmosphere. This will enable the students to expose themselves to real eco-systems and study and get to know more about plants and cultivation.

Asha’s Right Start Program

Right start is the annual week long training program happening every year for Asha teachers, which focuses on Maths, English, Science and interactive effective teaching methodologies for the same. The program is aptly named- to be good teachers; the right start would have to be from the teachers. The teachers have to be trained and taught properly, so they can then carry it forward to the children.

The program focuses on instilling confidence in the teachers, in being proactive about learning and staying updated.  The training methods used during this program are state of the art, with smart boards and maintaining a completely interactive format.

The teacher training is conducted as a residential program for that one week at IIT Madras Campus, to ensure maximum participation and concentration during the program.
